Cheddar Man

A pair of sapphires sparkling with joie de vivre
Lighthouses from another era
Beaconing forth below his long dark hair
Uncut by modern vanity
His meat eater’s embouchure
Taught and strong
The hunter gatherer of yester-year
Stands proud in his dark skin
While is paled ancestors gaze in bewilderment
At their reversed image.
